Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
This application is to amend the 3BM-NAU2126 water license to include the construction of a new lagoon upstream of the current wastewater discharge point and wetland-treatment-area and to amend the compliance point treatment objective parameters at REP-6 to CBOD/TSS 100/120 mg/L. All previous information submitted for this water license remains the same; there are no changes to the water supply or solid waste disposal infrastructure as authorized under 3BM-NAU2126.
Summary of Modifications:
This application is being submitted by the Government of Nunavut on behalf of the Municipality of Naujaat is to amend the 3BM-NAU2126 water license to include the construction of a new lagoon upstream of the current wastewater discharge point and wetland-treatment-area. Currently the Municipality discharges waste into a natural depression in a valley that acts as a permeable holding cell from which sewage passively flows through a series of wetlands and ponds before entering Hudson Bay. The new lagoon will be designed with a working volume of 104,550 cubic meters to hold 12-months of wastewater, precipitation, and sludge accumulation for a design life of 20-years, based on projected population growth. The wetland-treatment-area, and discharge point into the wetland-treatment-area will remain the same. An extension to the current lagoon access road to reach the new lagoon is also required. The road is proposed to be 4 m in width with a grade of 2.5%. Where the road meets the lagoon, a truck turning pad with a turning radius of 17.5 m will need to be constructed. Side slopes for the access road will be 3:1. Additionally, the Licensee is requesting to change the effluent treatment parameter limits to CBOD = 100 mg/L and TSS = 120 mg/L at the REP-6 compliance point based on the best available wastewater treatment research conducted in Nunavut. The license holder is also requesting to amend the license term to 10-years.
